After Greenlee finds a folder on Madison’s computer entitled, “Daddy’s memory book”, Madison explains that it’s for Ryan since he’s the father of her baby. Madison wonders if her own daughter will have similar feelings for her as Emma does for Greenlee. Scott reminds her that unlike Emma, Madison’s daughter will have a mother around that everyone loves. JR continues his hardest to get back with Marissa. Unhappy over her friendship with Scott, JR tries to throw his cousin under the bus over his living with Madison but Marissa says she already knows. JR tries to set up a double date with himself, Marissa, Bianca, and someone he thinks Bianca will like. Knowing Ricky is over at Kendall’s, Ryan shows up, claiming that he misses Spike. Ryan isn’t happy Kendall plans to still go out with Ricky even though it’s all part of her plan to try and trip him. At Confusion, Ricky opens up to Kendall about his feelings and while she’s on edge, Kendall covers well and pretends to have feelings for him as well. Griffin shows up at Kendall’s and says he couldn’t leave.

Jake’s a bit rattled when he finds out that Cara and Tad were in bed together. When Cara hears the hospital board wants to talk to both her and Jake she decides not to let him take the blame or put the Martin brothers in any more trouble so she resigns. Amanda notices sadness in Jake when he tells Tad to take care of Cara. Amanda decides to fix things by tossing her birth control. Kendall and Griffin argue about him not leaving town as planned but Griffin says he can’t leave her alone. Kendall admits to Ryan and Greenlee that Griffin is still in town and the three meet up with Griffin at a safe location/warehouse. She reveals her plan to make Ricky fall for her in the hopes he’ll admit something. Just in the event she might need it, Griffin pulls out a tranquilizer and shows Kendall how to use it. After having a little chat with Ricky, Ryan and Greenlee realize they were married by a minister who is also a murderer. Ryan plans to look into his credentials since this time they want to get everything right with their marriage.

Seeing how upset he is over Erica’s disappearance, Krystal offers to spend some time with Jack in the hopes she can distract him. Erica tries to grab hold of the disembodied voice but is unsuccessful. When her captor serves her something to eat she recognizes it’s from Krystal’s but when she asks if the person is Krystal she gets no response. Marissa agrees to the double date for Bianca’s sake, believing her friend needs the distraction. After lunch JR’s called away on business leaving the girls to hang out. Alone for a moment with Bianca, Louise points out that maybe the date was a mistake because it’s clear she has feelings for someone else. Affected by her feelings for Marissa, Bianca decides to back out of going to the play. Upon Asher’s questioning, Caleb says nothing happened between him and Erica and he shuts down. He later apologizes to Asher for not opening up and Asher admits he wants to help his father out. Maya admits to Colby that she’s a big fan of her and her vlogs but remains vague with information about herself. Caleb wants to give Colby equipment for her vlogs which would support Corlandt Electronics but Asher isn’t so sure it’s a good idea to go over to the Chandler mansion. Caleb winds up getting into an argument with JR when he comes home and Asher gets in the middle and defends his father. He won’t remove the equipment because it’s Colby’s decision.

After misinterpreting a close moment with Jackson, Krystal is embarrassed and leaves. Krystal tries to quit working for Jackson but he tells her she’s not going anywhere. After seeing an old interview with Erica discussing her many marriages, Jackson becomes frustrated. Bianca encourages Jackson to keep an open mind since he doesn’t know the full story yet. Kendall tells Cara and Tad that Griffin has gone off to Afghanistan with renegade doctors and asked her to deliver the message. Cara’s hit with the feeling that for a moment she finally had family again but now that Griffin’s gone it’s lost. Kathy and Jenny approach Cara and tell her that she hasn’t lost her family. The outpouring of love from Tad and the girls brings a tear to her eye. Kendall fills Bianca in on all that’s going on and Bianca wants to help her nail Ricky. Griffin teaches Kendall how to defend herself and in doing so they wind up exceptionally close. The moment’s broken when Kendall gets a call from Ricky asking to see her right now. Erica succeeds in breaking through the initial door but finds herself face to face with a brick wall. She decides to hide her food and make it appear that she’s not eating. When the captor comes back he/she has a scrapbook of Erica’s life and wants to go through it together but Erica isn’t interested. Erica’s convinced the captor is Krystal but the captor claims Erica doesn’t know her at all.

Although Krystal initially thinks distance between her and Jackson is best, they work well together and she decides she’s not going to leave. Erica finally gets the captor to email her family and let them know she’s ok and briefly talks about Kendall and Bianca. Bianca approaches Jackson with the suggestion of making a video to Erica. Meanwhile, Erica looks longingly at a photo of Jack in the scrapbook. Caleb rebuffs Asher’s suggestion of recording a video for Erica, afraid that it could go viral. Asher makes the mistake of telling Caleb that he hacked into Kendall and Bianca’s email accounts and found that Erica had sent them an email. Angry at his son, Caleb goes straight to Bianca and apologizes but Bianca seems to get an idea off of what Caleb’s told her. Caleb apologizes to Asher for yelling at him and offers him a side gig. Kendall continues to play Ricky. She “confesses” that she and Zach fell out of love and it was tough for all those offering condolences for a perfect love that wasn’t really true. He acts surprised (even though he’s not thanks to Bianca planting the idea in his head earlier) and consoles her. While keeping an eye on Kendall and Ricky, Griffin almost gets caught when he steps on a twig; and Kendall distracts Ricky so Griffin can escape. Kendall lays in to Griffin for almost getting himself caught but he’s upset that she kissed Ricky despite her claim that it was all part of the act.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?
